Bradford, PA Fire Apr 1886
SIX ITALIANS BURNED TO DEATH.
BRADFORD, Penn., April 24.-- A frame building at Alton, erected on posts and used as sleeping quarters for laborers, toppled over at 1 o'clock this morning and caught fire from a stove. The building contained 38 Italians in the employ of the Erie Railroad. Before they could get out six were burned in a horrible manner and three others badly injured. The charred remains of the unfortunate victims have been removed and present a sickening sight.
